A recent multi-million dollar refit project completed at Lusben saw the vessel get extended to her current length with a new swim platform having been added. Designed by Andrea Pezzini, Blue Fin Yachts developed the project’s naval architecture. Inside, she can accommodate up to 12 guests and eight full-time crew. Here she is seen anchored off Monaco last summer season.
